While most people talk about its flashy graphics and gruesome fatalities, it’s easy to forget about the fact that Mortal Kombat X has a plot. This goes beyond a simple exchange between characters. NetherRealm Studios created an untold number of beautiful cinematic cut scenes, some of which are on full display in this new MKX story trailer. 

While not as impactful as seeing a guy get dismembered (though we loved the scene where the severed head takes a few arrows), we have a feeling this will help make the wait until April 14 even tougher.
